Caribbean Dumplings


  • 2 cups ap flour
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 2 tbs unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp kosher salt

These dumplings are typically served as a side dish instead of bread in many Caribbean countries. They are also used to drop into soups or stews.


  • Sift the flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl.
  • Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture is crumbly.
  • Add enough cold water to make a fairly stiff dough.
  • Turn out the flour on a work surface and knead until smooth.
  • Shape into balls about 1 and 1/2 inches in diameter, then flatten.
  • Drop into boiling salted water to cover and cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Note: dumplings may be added directly to soups or stews instead of being cooked separately.
